A peep into the year that went by...

Image source -

It just seems like a few days ago,when I was compiling a post for the Best recipes of 2008 post..time flies,really!!I almost thought I wouldn’t be able to do this post as the house is full now..with my mom and Ajay’s parents around.Besides being pampered by both the amma’s I am enjoying all the yummy food they’ve been preparing since last few days.No wonder I’ve been postponing blogging and blog-hopping for later..:)

The year 2009 didn’t see me blogging so regularly as I did in 2008.Month of March saw me posting 14 posts whereas April went down only with 2 posts for the month.Rest of the months,I’ve averaged between 6-8 posts.Which in fact has made my job easier for compiling this post..:)

On the personal front,the year 2009 has been a mixed bag for us.The year started off with a couple of sad instances but we moved on.The shadow of recession was looming large behind us,and the scare of Swine flu too,but again..we moved on.The end of the year though is looking quite good and we are stepping into the new year with new hopes,new dreams and lots of happy thoughts!!

Sending across this post to Srivalli for the event Best of 2009.

Cooking resolutions for the year – I’ve always wanted to do a menu plan for the week and buy groceries for it accordingly,saving me the trouble of thinking of what to prepare for the next meal.I am strongly planning to incorporate that habit this year!!

Wishing all of you a very Happy New Year…:)

Happy Holidays!!!
